Africana Studies

Xavier faculty are updating the Africana Studies minor in 2022. The revised minor reflects the university’s commitment to racial justice and to respond to current events in the United States and across the globe that have led to more activism to address anti-Black racism.

The minor requires 18 credits, most of which also count for Core Curriculum requirements. There are 3 required classes and then various electives, so students have flexibility in how they complete the major.  

Students interested in learning more about the minor should contact Dr. Mich Nyawalo, interim director of the minor, at
